Steam and websites

Last night I whipped together a website (take a look here) for my brother Robert for his driving school since he's competing against ever growing number of instructor and thinks he needs a web presence to for a younger audience who no longer use the yellow pages, but search the Internet.

Today I needed to make a Steam punk weapon for AscendancyLRP, lots of bits of brass including a candlesticks and the end of curtain rail, along with a fire extinguisher sprayed with brass paint. Yes and just my luck it was dry this morning the minute I popped outside to spray the extinguisher it started raining making the paint bubble, so I had to start again and fume up the house. Hopefully I will get photo while its being carried in costume tomorrow during the game.

I also went to see AndyT holiday cottage just finished, well he was still putting a door handle on, Phil and several others larpers from London will be staying there for 3 nights and it looks smashing, they will be the newly renovated houses first guests.

  1. Yay for finished cottage, even though it turns out to be the one my friend was also trying to buy, small world! Hope prop was good, sorry I couldn't see it, you can't beat dh's idea of oh you can come up during the day, oh but I have our transport already up there eh, hmmmmmmm Like your bro's website too, glad the cost of learning to drive doesn't seem to have escalated too much, as we'll be putting Gabriel through that soon!
